AceShowbiz - The first official trailer of the documentary "Amy" has arrived. The two-minute trailer includes exclusive interview, unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks of Amy Winehouse.
The trailer opens with footage of the late singer in a recording room saying, "Ow, it's a bit upsetting in the end, isn't it?" It continues with voiceover of Amy's friend describing her, "She was highly intelligent, the most intelligent person I knew." Telling the story of the Grammy winner, it features an exclusive interview where Amy said, "The more people see of me, the more they'll realise all I'm good for is making music."
The tagline in the trailer describes the film as "a heart-breaking journey." The film centers on the tragic and remarkable story of the British Jazz singer who was "trying to disappear" and was uncomfortable with fame.
Amy died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. Amy's partner at the time of her death, film director Reg Traviss, described "Amy" as "a piece of orchestrated spin." "They have taken her name and exploited her talent for their own ends, without taking the responsibility of reflecting the true person that she was," he wrote in a statement. Moreover, Amy's family slammed the movie because they think the film is a missed opportunity to celebrate her life and talent and that it is both misleading and contains some basic untruths.
James Gay-Rees produces the film while Asif Kapadia serves behind the lens. The film is set to hit cinemas in the U.K. on July 3.
